Gus announced to world they were going to run mostly. That was dumb. LBs knew they could follow ball and not have to worry about TEs or anyone else going out on routes. Didnt make sense to tell defense that.so our offense had trouble moving the ball…. maybe the defense is elite but ..
hard to win that way in college football the last 5+I have a really good feeling about this years defense. We saw the improvement late in the season last year....NOW with the new additions I think they are going to give teams fits. You win championships with defense. That was GOL strength for many years as he excelled on defense, and ran a balanced offense with ball control. Not saying GUS will run a ball control offense just a flashback to how GOL won Division Titles

Can’t forget about Landon Woodson at DE. The DL talent and depth is looking really good. The talent coming in through recruiting only to strengthen, haven’t seen this kind of talent depth here in a while (if ever? 😬).
Wasn't Bowser held out of something?I’ve heard it said in a few press conferences that Landon Woodson and Quade Mosier are the only 2 being held out of practice because of injury. I know Mosier had shoulder surgery but has anyone heard anything about Landon’s injury??
Totally! Especially in the redzone! Big Paul is fck HUGE!!!!Just going off of the ESPN miniseries last year he seems like a good teammate. Not sure how much he’ll play but he is trying. Sometimes it’s worth a flier to go out and sign a foreign kid with size just for potential.

Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face! -Mike TysonWhy does it often seem that the QB competition is tight?
It seems like we get to this point often in camps where it looks like the QB competition is tight. However, in a game it boils down to whether the playmaking ability or lack of playmaking ability of the QB makes the difference.
In non-contact situations for QB it is difficult if not impossible to judge who is going to be your best game QB. If you are only looking at fieldmanship or running the offense factor of the QB position it ignores the reality of the truth that during a game there are always non-scripted plays made by the QB which keep the chains moving.
If these 2 QBs play is the same you have to consider two things: 1) Last season the defense bailed out the offense ran by Keene in many of our games because if the called play wasn't there he couldn't do much to change the outcome; 2) Plumlee tape shows what he can do when a play isn't there. I just hope we don't see a replay of the past like we did with GOL where we had to lose multiple games before he relented and gave into the fact that fieldmanship alone shouldn't determine who your starter QB should be.
If all we had was the freshmen Castellanos right now I'd probably be making my case for him to be the QB starter. I watched almost a full season of Keene last year and didn't see glimmers of a talented Dual QB. You don't achieve a championship season without a QB who is both a good field general and playmaker (usually with their legs and running ability).
Or they were told to not give opinions on the position and not to release who will be starting. Even if one of them is clear starter, you want them to keep competing.If Plumlee is doing everything Keene is doing, there wouldn't be a competition at this point. I don't think the players and staff is blind to the fact that one QB is significantly more athletic and has a better chance to improvise. On top of that Plumlee was recruited by Malzahn, fits his style of offense more.
More likely the reason why players/coaches feel its close, Plumlee isn't running the offense as well because of various reasons (rust, knowledge of playbook, accuracy, ect.) so its not a cut and dry decision.
